More About the Owners

Scott Kaplan

Scott’s family has been involved in the construction trade his whole life.  He began working in the construction industry when he was 11, going to work with his father every chance he could, until he joined the Navy at age 19.  His interest in inspecting a residential home’s material condition has been an interest of his since he started shadowing his father at a young age.


Senior Chief Scott Kaplan is a native of New York, class of 1991.  After attending community college for electrical engineering, he enlisted in the US Navy and served his country honorably for 21 years.  The last 17 years in the Navy, Scott served as a compliance inspector for Navy Recruiting.  He has a meticulous eye and is not afraid to call it like it is.


In 2014, Scott retired from the US Navy, and began teaching high school, while also working part time in the construction business as a site planner.  His passion for construction soon became his #1 priority, and he left teaching to begin his career as a residential home inspector.


Chris Miles

Chris grew up in the St. Charles area and is a graduate of Francis Howell North High School. He retired from the Navy after serving his country for 22 years as a Nuclear Engineering officer in the submarine force.


Chris has been in the construction business and a custom home builder since 2005.  The training and mentality of being in the Navy, and operating and maintaining a Nuclear Reactor has instilled the attributes of Honor, Courage, Commitment, Integrity, and Attention to Detail. These attributes have proven successful in the construction industry ensuring that no minor detail is missed during the construction of custom homes.


As your Home Inspector, Chris has dedicated himself to using his characteristics of integrity and attention to detail to ensure the safety and funtionality of your home is at its BEST before you buy.
